government control. he also looks at how president obama and mitt romney will deal with the housing industry after november's election. this is just under an hour. >> i'm bob glauber. i'm a member of the faculty here at kennedy school. it is a pleasure to welcome all of you to this year's lecture which is funded by nasd which is the private sector regulator of the u.s. brokerage industry. the focus of this series is on financial regulation. and each year we have had a leading public official responsible in some way for u.s. financial regulation. this year our speaker is a tiny bit of a stretch. he was c.e.o. of freddie mac from mid 2009 to just a few months ago. while in that role he was not a public regulator, he was responsible for returning a very large public financial institution. freddie mac and fannie mae are what are called government sponsored entities, g.s.e.'s. for years they were described as private companies with a public of supporting housing, or, more simply, as mixed public-private enterprises. in september of 2008 both failed financially, were placed in government conservat

has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. but it does not seem that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something like a presidential debate. other than health care, i can't see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attack affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it's remarkable. the republicans who during the nineties for a while were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action don't do it anymore. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the hassle. part of it was there is an incredibly bitter campaign in california over proposition 209 which b

invested overseas because you were -- governor romney is right. you are familiar with does being shipped overseas because you invest in companies that ship jobs overseas. we would be buying cars from china instead of selling cars to china. if we take your advice with respect to how we change our tax codes so companies that are earning profits overseas do not pay u.s. taxes, compared to companies here that are paying taxes, that is estimated to create $800,000. but the problem is they will be in place like china. if we're not making investments in education and basic research which is not something the private sector is doing and is sufficient basis, then we will lose the lead in things like clean energy technology. with respect to what we have done with time already, u.s. exports -- we have done with china already, u.s. exports have doubled to china. currencies are at the most advantageous point for u.s. exporters since 1993. we have to make more progress and that is why we will keep on pressing. when it comes to our military and chinese security, part of the reason we are able to pivot
